Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book Claims of Dual Nationals and the Development of Customary International Law: Issues Before the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal contains acknowledgments and the table of contents. The Islamic Revolution of Iran, which gathered momentum as from late 1978, resulted in the overthrow of the Shah’s regime and in its replacement by a provisional government, in February 1979. The pre-Revolution turmoil and the discomforts it brought about, together with crippling strikes in public and banking services, led to the exodus from Iran of many thousands of Iranians and expatriates. Chief among the latter were American expatriates – 45´000 in number – who worked on a host of military and civil projects.
